Go Walking In The Mountains
Do you have an appreciation for the great outdoors? Taking a walk up in the San Bernardino Mountains is the ideal recreational experience, especially in late April. In the spring the trees are sprouting leaves, and the crisp air is invigorating for those who do not like the heat of the summer months. So how do you get to the San Bernardino Mountains from the Los Angeles region? First, you should consult Google Maps for the best driving directions, but taking the 10 East all the way to Redlands and then merge on to the 210 East. Once you get to San Bernardino, you want to exit on the Waterman Ave, which eventually turns into highway 18 at the base of the San Bernardino Mountains. Take Highway 18 all the way up to Lake Arrowhead, or continue up to Big Bear to see more of the San Bernardino Mountains.
Getting To The San Bernardino Mountains
Below is a short video taken during a morning walk in the San Bernardino Mountains.
On my walks I always enjoy looking at the Pinnacles, and photographing this location.
I love the contrast with the branches of the oak tree and the mountains behind it.

There are many small manzanita trees growing on forest trails up in the San Bernardino Mountains.
The trees up in the San Bernardino Mountains always look truly spectacular.
When I walk around on short hikes up in the San Bernardino Mountains, I observe small objects such as interesting rocks.
I love looking across the canyon to see trees on the hillside in the distance.
In the early spring it is very encouraging to see small sprigs of grass emerging from the forest ground.
As I glance down the forest road I see a tree stump, which once belonged to a mighty oak tree.
The branches of the oak tree in the foreground create a veil for the mountains in the background.
The picture above is another view of the mountains as seen through the oak tree branches.
The tree branches are beautiful and striking set against the cerulean sky of a late April morning.
Each spring I always used to await the leaves that form on the oak trees each spring.
Here is another picture I took of the view looking down at Hesperia, as seen from up in the San Bernardino Mountains. This place will always be home to me, and it is quite beautiful.
